How to format your references using the Deep-Sea Research Part I citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Deep-Sea Research Part I. For a complete guide how to prepare your manuscript refer to the journal's instructions to authors.

Using reference management software

Typically you don't format your citations and bibliography by hand. The easiest way is to use a reference manager:

PaperpileThe citation style is built in and you can choose it in Settings > Citation Style or Paperpile > Citation Style in Google Docs.
EndNoteDownload the output style file
Mendeley, Zotero, Papers, and othersThe style is either built in or you can download a CSL file that is supported by most references management programs.
BibTeXBibTeX syles are usually part of a LaTeX template. Check the instructions to authors if the publisher offers a LaTeX template for this journal.

Journal articles

Those examples are references to articles in scholarly journals and how they are supposed to appear in your bibliography.

Not all journals organize their published articles in volumes and issues, so these fields are optional. Some electronic journals do not provide a page range, but instead list an article identifier. In a case like this it's safe to use the article identifier instead of the page range.

A journal article with 1 author
Abbott, A., 2000. European space panel picks new priorities. Nature 407, 277.
A journal article with 2 authors
Shcheka, S.S., Keppler, H., 2012. The origin of the terrestrial noble-gas signature. Nature 490, 531–534.
A journal article with 3 authors
Bazzini, A.A., Lee, M.T., Giraldez, A.J., 2012. Ribosome profiling shows that miR-430 reduces translation before causing mRNA decay in zebrafish. Science 336, 233–237.
A journal article with 4 or more authors
Amrani, N., Ganesan, R., Kervestin, S., Mangus, D.A., Ghosh, S., Jacobson, A., 2004. A faux 3’-UTR promotes aberrant termination and triggers nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Nature 432, 112–118.

Web sites

Sometimes references to web sites should appear directly in the text rather than in the bibliography. Refer to the Instructions to authors for Deep-Sea Research Part I.

Blog post
Andrew, E., 2015. E-Cigarette Vapor Shown To Repress Immune System [WWW Document]. IFLScience. URL https://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/e-cigarette-vapor-shown-repress-immune-system/ (accessed 10.30.18).

Reports

This example shows the general structure used for government reports, technical reports, and scientific reports. If you can't locate the report number then it might be better to cite the report as a book. For reports it is usually not individual people that are credited as authors, but a governmental department or agency like "U. S. Food and Drug Administration" or "National Cancer Institute".

Government report
Government Accountability Office, 2008. Information Technology: Significant Problems of Critical Automation Program Contribute to Risks Facing 2010 Census (No. GAO-08-550T). U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC.

Theses and dissertations

Theses including Ph.D. dissertations, Master's theses or Bachelor theses follow the basic format outlined below.

Doctoral dissertation
Beaven, L., 2014. Epiphanies of soul: “When the bolts of the universe fly open.” A depth psychological contemplation of wonder (Doctoral dissertation). Pacifica Graduate Institute, Carpinteria, CA.

News paper articles

Unlike scholarly journals, news papers do not usually have a volume and issue number. Instead, the full date and page number is required for a correct reference.
New York Times article
Williams, J., 2017. Backstage With Van Halen. New York Times BR4.

In-text citations

References should be cited in the text by name and year in parentheses:

This sentence cites one reference (Abbott, 2000).
This sentence cites two references (Abbott, 2000; Shcheka and Keppler, 2012).

Here are examples of in-text citations with multiple authors:

  • Two authors: (Shcheka and Keppler, 2012)
  • Three or more authors: (Amrani et al., 2004)
